2016 Silverado Custom Double Cab - Rattling noise


Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

I have a 2016 Silverado Custom double cab and I was wondering if anyone has this particular issue that I have been dealing with for quite some time. I purchased the truck brand new from my local dealership and as time went by it developed this clattering noise. This particular noise tends to appear when I am either braking while entering an intersection or driving and slow breaking. It sounds like its coming from the middle compartment of the truck and I cant seem to figure out what the deal with it is. I have tried with no success to record the noise in order to take it to the dealership to no avail. I have taken it to the dealership but they tell me that I have to replicate the sound in order for them to be able to determine a diagnostic in order to fix it. I took the tech on a drive but I was unable to duplicate the sounds. It sounds like its a progressive clanking noise of two metal pieces. The sound is not constant but rather it tends to build up in noise and then clutters down. The truck has only 11k miles on it and all have been placed by me. If anyone can please help me with this so that I can take it to the dealership with  something in order for them to handle this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Does your truck have the shields, rock guards,under neath?, if it does I'm pretty sure you probably check that as that's an easy one. I heard a few people say that their F-150s have that issue, I am not sure about your truck, worth getting underneath and wrapping on it a little bit to see if it is vibrating or making some noises. Good luck

I have a clunking sound, seems to come from the folding back seats. I tried to see if it was the jack and tools that weren’t secured properly, but that wasn’t it. I’ll follow along to see if anyone has figured it out.

I found that fix you have to slam the rear seats down hard after folding them up. Or you will get a annoying sound from back area. Ive had that noise on every GM truck I drove. It took me a while to figure it out but that fixed it.

I have a sub under my back bench seat so that doesn’t allow it to go all the way down. I’m going to slide it out and slam like you are talking about and see if that helps. Thanks. I’ll let y’all know if this helps.

      Hello everyone. I've recently purchased a 2020 Silverado 1500 from a dealership. I found out late in the sale that the truck was used as the dealerships "loaner" which didn't really bother me even though I know people beat up those vehicles. Anyway, I'm pretty in-tune to vehicle sounds and I had a couple of questions regarding noises I'm hearing from my vehicle. 
       
      The first is a clunking noise and a physical jolt when I shift from Drive to Reverse. I have my foot on the brake and am on a flat surface. I notice it a lot after I've been driving for a while and go to back into my garage. I took the truck back to the dealership and they chalked it up to bad U-joints. They slapped 2 fresh sets on, but I've still go the issue. Any ideas what it may be? I don't feel like anything is going to fail, but I also don't like the sound and don't think it should be that way. I have another service appointment next week and I'd like to help them out with ideas considering they don't really seem to care.
       
      The second is a ticking noise coming from the undercarriage. I' got under the truck today and believe it's coming from the rear portion of the engine, but I'm not for certain as I've never been beneath the truck while it's been on a rack. The noise cannot be heard when standing at the front with the hood up, but I can hear it very noticeably when standing at the driver's door. I do not hear it as the engine is heating up, but that could be because every other component under the hood is loud as h*ll while the truck is heating up. Once the engine is approaching operating temp, it's very noticeable. As you can hear from the short video, it's every .5 to 1 second or so and is always present during idling. Again, may not be a big issue, but I hate hearing things on my vehicles that I can't attribute to something else.
       
      Thanks for reading my ramblings. I can try to post longer videos if anyone needs. Thanks in advance!

      So I just got a 2018 Silverado 2500 and am wondering if anyone has experienced this in there’s.
       
      when I turn my truck off and then open and shut the door to make the radio turn off I can still hear what I can only assume to be the fan in the radio stay on. If I lock the truck it turns the fan off for a second and then it comes back on. If I push the power button on the radio it shuts off but again comes on. Anyone have any thoughts or does this happen in anyone else’s 2014-2019? It didn’t happen in my 2016 that had the same infotainment center that is the reason for my concern.

      My 2019 trailboss has a rattling noise coming from the engine I hear it over the exhaust. (aftermarket) I don't hear it inside cabin. I only hear it outside also with the windows down. Dealership said its normal but it sounds terrible. Anything I can do??

      I installed the 2in Rough Country leveling kit on my 2021 1500 Silverado Custom model and I am getting a clicking noise when I accelerate and decelerate from my passenger side. There is also a louder metallic click when I turn into a driveway and when my front right passenger strut is compressed. This began a couple thousand miles after my kit was put on. It is driving me insane and I can’t seem to figure out what is causing this noise, has anyone had this issue with their newer Silverado’s? Attached is a video that has the clicking sound when I was braking today. Thanks in advance.

      I've had this issue for two months but it has been minimal until recently. While going anywhere above 30mph, at around 1200rpm if I give it about quarter throttle to half throttle i will hear a clanking/knocking noise. I have recorded it with my phone but you are unable to hear it at all. The other day while merging on the highway it made the noise much worse than it ever has. I am wondering if anyone has had this before, I know some of the 3.0 DuraMax guys have had it, but has anyone with the 6.2 had an issue similar to this. I will be taking it to the dealership tomorrow.
